INDIANAPOLIS (21Alive) - Indianapolis Arsenal Tech forward Trey Lyles has been named 2014 Indiana Mr. Basketball.

The Indianapolis Star, who presents the award, published the results Tuesday.

Lyles won 117 votes. Indianapolis Park Tudor forward Trevon Bluiett finished second (108 votes), and Marion--and former Bishop Luers--guard James Blackmon Jr. finished third (95 votes).

Lyles averaged 23.7 points, 12.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game in his senior season. He led Tech to a Class 4A boys basketball state championship last month.
